January has been slow to move, but I mean it in the best way possible. There has been what feels like all the time in the world to sit and reflect. Thirty is a big deal.
The easiest change to recognize would be visually. At the end of 2020, I decided to quit tanning entirely. If nothing else, the maintenance was becoming less worth the effort. But my true skin tone isn't far from what the salon gave me. And my makeup shade changed from 4 to 3, but that has more to do with wearing a face mask than my tan. Straight has has been the style of choice. It takes less time but also has more consistent of a look throughout the day. No more damage throughout the length of the hair from backcombing, no more extra products to hold that volume. Also, I've introduced sweats into my daily wear. See, even in writing this, I fear it might sound as if I've gotten lazy. That hasn't been the case at all. Natural? No, not even that. It's just a different look. My makeup will go right back to full glam as soon as masks are no longer. But this hair and style will stay. I like it.
Luxury items will stay on my list of priorities. They make me happy to obtain and wear on my person. Unboxing & review videos are some of my favorites to film. Skincare is a new hobby! At thirty, I believe that my skin will need some additional love which is fine with me. It's a new, welcome luxury.
Do I have predictions of the year to come? Maybe. I do think that we will finally be mask-free and safe. I am considering purchasing more home decor pieces, but have yet to decide whether it will be post-worthy. 2021 will remain just me and the dogs on my channel. I wouldn't have it any other way.
